Swallow This, Second Edition: The Progressive Approach to Wine The iconoclastic host of the PBS show Enjoying Wine with Mark Phillips, has been turning the wine world on its ear since it first aired. In his 2009 wave maker, Swallow This, Mark stirred things up even more (freeze wine!!) to the delight of consumers. Now comes the second edition, and it s a doozy. Among its new material are topics such as How to fix wine if you don't like it; wine selection and pricing ratings for major retail chains (Whole Foods, Costco, BevMo, Trader Joe's, etc.); additional food and wine pairing guidelines; how global warming is significantly changing wine growing regions; and a list of restaurants with the best deals on wine in the major metros of every State. How different is Swallow This to the usual tasting guide? Here s a sample of the topics Mark address. When to microwave wine Why it s silly to buy highly rated wine Wine choices for doing laundry, walking the dog, etc. The advantages of storing wine in Tupperware, plastic bottles or Ziploc bags The most amazing way to open a bottle of sparking wine The hazards of keeping wine in your living room or still worse, your kitchen How to blend wine at home to make it taste better What one ingredient makes all wine and food matches work The benefit of adding ice cubes to wine The four sentences to say to a wine store clerk to get good wine every time When to send back a wine at a restaurant, even if you just don t like it What s the best wine to serve and/or bring to a dinner party And so much more! Mark offers a whole new approach to wine, which flies in the face of what has been traditionally taught and serves as a practical and empowering alternative. Witty, unique and never boring, Swallow This will change the way you think about wine.
